5 stars I must admit, upon first hearing the sample here on PA, I wasn't very impressed at all. Then fast forward to a time a bit later... mainly thanks to all the insane amounts of praise this album was getting, I finally decided to buy it. Now after about 15 listens or so in a week or so, I can honestly say this album not only lives up to expectations, but totally excels beyond them. Rarely have I heard an album of such beauty and absolute perfection. Actually, I can only think of one album that comes close (Locanda Delle Fate's only album).

I really don't feel like getting really in depth with what this album sounds like. If you'd like, you can read the other reviews who do a far better job at this than me. Or for the best impression, simply listen to the sample. This isn't what I would consider symphonic or really truely progressive at all, but more or less folk. If you like beautiful music, you will most definitely love this. To the person who gave this album 3 stars: yes this doesn't have any killer solos or hooks or catchy melodies and stuff like that. However, the sheer beauty of this album is more than enough for me to call it a masterpiece. Notice the repetition in the word "beauty" yet? Well, you'll see what I mean after listening to this.

In less than a week, this climbed from an album I felt that I would be disappointed in to one of my top 5 favorite albums ever. It may take a few listens, it took 3 full spins for this too fully grow on me, but this album is a huge grower. I strongly urge everyone who considers themselves to be a fan of progressive rock to buy this album as soon as possible. I can guarantee you will not regret it!
